damn thats pretty quick. i dont think my car is running to its full potential
Depends on a bunch of things such as:
Auto or Manual
Type I or Type II Engine
Wheel size
New or old ignition coils
Good or bad tranny mount ( bad one actually get better time for some reason)
If auto, are you manually shifting it or not?

It's not how light they are that affects the ecceleration. It is how far the the rim of the metal wheel is from the center of the hub. An average tire only weighs 5 lbs. You have more rolling weight further to the outside of the diameter of the wheel! That will slow eccel down.

Um, are you guys talking about top gear acceleration, or 3rd, or high 2nd-3rd or what? If you are talking about 50-70mph in 4th gear, then i doubt 4-5 seconds, since that would mean we are about 2 seconds faster than an M5, and 1.2 seconds faster than a Dinan M5.
